Description

This is Clara, she is a hand embroidered wren rag doll. I use no paint to delineate the pattern but work freehand embroidery onto self colour cloth to make the plumage both on the front and the back of the doll. Clara is dressed in a pretty patterned cotton lawn from Liberty called Poppy and Daisy with coordinating underskirt and a final lace underskirt to finish. She has stripy legs and little leather shoes. Her dress is finished with buttons and ribbon and she carries a little lavender sachet that is also embroidered. She has a little brass ring to her back so she can hang.

She stands just nine inches tall.

She is, as are all my girls, warm and companiable with a touch of English whimsy. I hope she makes you smile.

Inspiration

I always start with the fabric and go from there. This fabric is called Poppy and Daisy and is taken from hand drawn English botanicals . The fabric reminded me of late summer when we see so many wrens in the dense ivy on our walls. In Lancashire we say Jenny wren but Kitty is common in other parts of the country, as is Cutty, Stubbitt and even Rindell.
